The Browning School
Location 52 East 62nd St, New York, NY
Project Size 65,000 SF
JRM Construction Management undertook an expansion and renovation project for the Browning School to connect three separate structures and properties that house the school, creating consistent interior conditions throughout the facility.
JRM expanded the cellar to the property line for a new cafeteria. The 102 year old masonry structure was reinforced with structural steel to create openings for student circulation. The expansion foundation consisted of drilled friction piles reaching more than 60 ft below street level. New structural openings in the existing building façade were widened to larger than 6 ft to accommodate an open plan for the new cafeteria seating area.
The work included structural steel modifications and brickwork, structural steel framing for the expansion and support of new air handlers and compressors, outdoor paving, millwork, structural glass flooring, and skylights for the covered outdoor seating area. New gas and electrical services and underground plumbing were also installed to accommodate the new and existing systems. JRM performed all the work while the school was fully operational and the residential apartments were occupied.
